Dog And The Cold

Recommended Posts

My littlest feist detest the cold. Usually anyway. Tonight all she wants to do is hunt. I swear I think the cold is helping her to scent animals. She is trying her dangsest to get after something in one of the wooded areas over here. To the extent she is whining and choking herself on her leash.

Poor thing if I didn't have to be awake at 0430 I would let her have a go at whatever she has found. She has me curious.

I live in southeast AL Slonezp. We are projected to get 1-2 inches of icey rain/snow. The schools and my job shut down from lunch today until Thursday. Roads are closing at 6 this evening. We are prepared for the blizzard of '14. Lmao

Update.

5 freaking hours I have been stuck in this d**n truck. Probably another two or three hours before we make it to my sons school. Wife's car couldn't handle the snowy ice. So she left it and hiked to where I was sitting in traffic.

Man, I grew up in snowstorms in Tennessee that was worse than this, and got used to controlling my car. Not one time did I spun out, slid, etc., on the way home. It took me 1.5 hours to go 20 miles from downtown Tuscaloosa to my home. I was sitting in red light near a hill and I had been in low gear the entire time keeping my distance, not pressing gas too hard, not braking hard, and my car was spinning slowly anyway due to low gear. I was well within controlling my car with multiple slick spots all over the road, and had solid nerves up to this point. As I sat there chewing gum, trying not to pee myself (shouldn't had that 3rd cup of coffee.), listening to some My Morning Jacket, and then I saw in review mirror a SEMI-TRUCK was sliding!!!! And another car was a foot from hitting side of my car!! My heart was freaking racing, and I was thinking of all the craps I should have done with my life. On the plus side I didn't have to pee anymore, so there the silver lining.

 

I WAS HAPPY to have finally reached the dreaded hilly backroad because I was hoping for no traffic. As I first pulled into the backroad, I see a white covered road with no tread marks. Kind of relieved to think there be no more amateur drivers or egoistical redneck thinking he can get across icy road in truck that has more money put into it than his mobile home only to watch them fish tail up a couple hills....No more than 5 minutes later a school bus comes barreling down the other lane slamming her brakes... I said a few words that get bleeped on here, but good grief my mind thought she would slide into me head on. Anyway, I reached the top of first hill, I switched my ol' reliable vehicle into 4x4 low and proceed roller coaster my way home on the hillside. I got home and I crap you not, I nearly fell asleep from that adrenaline rush. People in 'Bama go crazy, y'all.. CRAZY!! People be the death of me..

 

If you wanna know what happen if everyone on the road would drive if they were drunk, come watch these Alabama folks drive in this kind of weather.

10 freaking hours! It took 10 d**n hours and I still never made it home! All the roads are ice after you get out of Birmingham. People have left so many vehicles scattered all over the place you can't get anywhere. To top it off maybe 6 people in this city know how to drive in ice and snow. We ended up coming to my parents house. All the roads into my city are either deadlocked or the cops are turning people away. Then to top it all off. My dang truck wouldnt make it up the hill in my parents neighborhood. We had to walk the half mile to their house.

My son is having to spend the night at school with the other 75% of the kids. The school sent out a email canceling classes AFTER the dang roads started snowing and icing over. Way to go Alabama! Way to go stupid private school board! Grrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!

I don't what would be better. Watching him trying to drive this, or watching him trying to get in it.

We play great football here, we have great bar bq, but we don't drive in snow for ****. The entire city is shutdown. They said a couple thousand slept in their cars on our non moving roads last night.

Y'all can keep the snow.

I'm not picking on you raider, but I find it funny that with a little snow, people are actually sleeping in their cars.

So, is that a step up, or a step down from the trailer park?
